Unveiling the Plot

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new Alien movie will shift its focus to a group of young protagonists, diverging from the established career-driven characters of the original series. They will confront the formidable Xenomorph, an alien species known for implanting its young into human hosts via face-huggers. Beyond this, details remain a closely guarded secret, but the film is expected to stay true to the franchise’s chilling legacy.

Is It a Sequel?

The new Alien installment stands as a standalone addition to the franchise, neither a sequel nor a prequel. This marks the ninth entry in the Alien film series, inclusive of the Alien and Predator crossover films.
